't take it very seriously, and then his comment to paul ryan i thought was a telling one saying to paul ryan we don't have a definitive solution to the problem, but we don't like yours. you got to have solutions if you're the secretary of treasury. melissa: tim, what do you think? can you cut it in the middle. we have an a and a d, what do you give him? >> actually, i feel right in the best place. i give him a c-plus, better than average, better than average. he had a tough job over the last four years, and i'm not sure anybody could have scored an "an," even though my colleagues think so. at the start, he didn't start well or end well. the stimulus package at the beginning of the administration was largely untargetted and unproductive, and didn't really help us. melissa: is that really something that he designs? i feel like you give the president a "d" or "f" for that. he's just carrying out the policy. >> part of the team, but he was not effective in convincing the administration that they needed, if they were going to deficit spend in order to bridge us through the recession, they sh

'ven been in the majority. the ryan plan laid out how to deal with our biggest problems, debt and deficit and ongoing spending, if we don't reform, we'll end up bankrupting this country and it's unfair to the generation not to stop this. it's time for the senate to step up and i've done my town meetings, sean, people say, well you who did they get away with that, what's the penalty? if it were me in my job i'd get fire. do they get their pay docked? i think the notion of no budget, no pay makes a lot of sense and people want to weigh in go to nrcc.org website and make their views heard. >> sean: and by the way, we're watching, the first lady and president obama and the second ball of the evening and a few less balls than in 2009 and give the president a lot of credit. i did not dance at my own wedding i can't dance, i don't like to dance and they look nice together. all right. why are you laughing at that, congressman? no reason to mock-- >> i'm sorry, i'm just picturing you dancing to jennifer hudson. >> sean: i love jennifer hudson. i would love to be at the party. everybody is taping,

of ayn rand, the patron saint of paul ryan. that's what they spent inauguration day doing. good luck with that. right after the election this year, after insisting publicly over and over again that there was no need to strip union rights in the state of michigan, michigan republicans, surprise, passed a bill doing just that, and governor rick snyder signed it. the whole thing was opened, passed, and shut within a week, never mind what we said before, we're doing it. surprise. michigan is amazing, right? i mean michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this ne
